I dream... therefore I will

Had dinner with a galfren on thursday night @ the Greenhouse Cafe (not sure if I got the name right). It's actually a florist, with a cafe serving up unique flower teas... and great dinner sets... all at affordable prices. The cafe accommodates only a few tables... which gives me a feeling that the owner set up this shop...purely to share her/his love for flowers.... and to share their own recipes with people who have the time to spend at their cafe. I love the greenhouse cafe. I remember... as a girl... other than badly wanting to be a crew... I had the dream of being an owner of a flower shop. Providing unique creations for numerous weddings... selling affordable flowers to those who have the same liking for flowers as me. I enjoy receiving flowers, of course would love to see people buying them to bring a smile of their loved ones. I also remember i have another dream. When I was in perth... i told myself... one day I will run and bake my own croissants, come up with my own past

6 years.

Not a very long time. Neither a very short period. It's been 6 years since we took the first step out of just being colleagues. The 6 significant things we went through together since... 1) He completed his studies, and got his degree. 2) He stood by me when I had to see my mum tru her cancer. 3) We both decided to pursue the careers outside of StarHub. He joined the bank... like what he has always wanted. Me, took on a marketing job...which was also what I have always wanted. (Other than the single regret of wanting to be a crew.) 4) We purchased out first home 5) We got married. 6) We remained married for two years.... ha ha. Here's to another good 6 years... and many more to come. Excerpts of the journey...

Buck up....else Shut up.

It is easy... oh so easy to talk about big plans. Sounds like a great idea. Nice to dream about.... but totally unrealistic. And while thinking big... maybe it's good to also act on it rather than push it away saying it's not your scope. Thanks for thoughts... but no thank you.

I did it....

A good first step. I picked up the phone, and made an appointment on friday to see the gynae. Doing well with my new year's resolution. Wish me luck.

Reality strikes

The curtain is drawn on all the major festivities. Too quick. Or was I in denial. When I returned to office on Wednesday.... reality hit me really bad when I see the endless initiatives... endless proposals calling out to me. I guess with each long  holiday... I could put off some of the important things i need to do. In fact I have not even made my new year's resolution. The biggest thing on my mind really is to stop procrastinating. I want to go for a pre-conception check-up... but been procrastinating for the longest time... There's a fear that something's not right in there.... oh well. Need more support.... esp. from my hubby. That's the other subject of my wish for the year. Dear Hwa... I hope you will learn to work less. Working till 11 + every night.... and working hard at the computer every weekend, does not make you best employee of the year. Your work is not everything and u have to seriously realise that there's more to life than  your work. And wh

CNY 09

This is the simplest... and quietest CNY I've ever had in  my 28 years as an earthling. :) No complains though... as that's the way it shud be. Time spent with family is more appreciated.           Bro... BBQing for everyone @ reunion din din. Bro & Evie....         Gosh! I look so old w/o make-up

we left the office behind

  While the rest of the world had an early release in celebration of the  Lunar New Year.... the entire Strategic Development team trudged up Bukit Tinggi (road), retreated into a cold room and had a supposedly inspirational 4 hours of brainwashing. How to control a situation, take ownership..... reach and endure!  Apparently that's the art of overcoming adversities. While I was really inspired at that point.... now i feel nothing. But it was a good session which I think hwa should go tru...              The extended family with some missing people..... Coming out of the cold room.... we went straight into the forest. Monkeys we all were, climbing.... swinging from tree to tree and gliding from point to point over the reservior. Scary it may be... but I was thrilled! I've got a secret phobia of heights. Yes... I never told anyone... and always acted brave. But guess that's the essence of overcoming adversities yah? Hot and sticky.... we headed off the 'THE M
